How do birth injuries occur?
Today, proper prenatal care, monitoring fetuses during labor and performances of timely C-sections help doctors avoid many traumatic child births. Some birth injuries do occur, however, despite the physician’s standard application of best medical practices. However, in other cases, doctors do not follow the accepted rules of procedure and these deviations end up harming mothers or their babies. These are the types of birth injuries that provide grounds for a lawsuit based on personal injury law.
Bisogno & Meyerson, LLP, has decades of experience helping clients pursue compensation when a Hospital, Doctor, Nurse or other medical provider or medical institution’s negligence has resulted in serious harm to an infant during birth.
Common types of serious birth injuries including Nerve damage, facial paralysis and severe jaundice are common birth injuries. Cerebral palsy and Erb’s palsy are even more damaging and some of the most serious, long-lasting injuries.
Cerebral palsy Birth Injury Lawyer
Cerebral palsy is a developmental disorder characterized by abnormal posture, exaggerated movement, rigid muscles and limbs, impaired motion, unsteady walking or any combination of these qualities. In terms of medical malpractice, the following medical errors frequently result in cerebral palsy:
- Oxygen deprivation during child birth
- Failure to detect and treat infections in the mother during prenatal care
- Failure to monitor the fetal heart rate during labor and birth
- Failure to detect a prolapsed umbilical cord (cord being pushed out before fetus during delivery)
- Failure to perform a C-section when the baby is too large for the birth canal
- Unnecessary C-section delays
- Negligent use of forceps or vacuum during delivery
- Cerebral Palsy

Erb’s palsy Lawyers
Erb’s palsy, also referred to as brachial plexus injuries, creates nerve damage in the baby’s brachial plexus, which is a bunch of nerves under the collar bone extending from the neck down the arm. When the baby’s head gets pulled in a different direction than the arm during delivery, it can result in Erb’s palsy.
